Tuktoyaktuk Winter Road

The Tuktoyaktuk Winter Road is an ice road on frozen Mackenzie River delta channels and the frozen Arctic Ocean between the Northwest Territories communities of Inuvik and Tuktoyaktuk, in Canada. It services gas hydrate fields and exploration facilities at Mallik, Aput, and Langley, along with the ice-locked barges Wurmlinger and Arctic Star, which act as bases of operations for ice road crews and exploration personnel. In addition, the road is a key supply line for Tuktoyaktuk and the hamlet of Aklavik.

It is part of the Dempster Highway. The rest of the Dempster Highway is on land and can be driven on through the summer.

Construction of an all-weather highway between Inuvik and Tuktoyaktuk commenced in April 2013.
